Ride Guide Cover featuring indigenous symbols

The TTC will be introducing a new Ride Guide cover highlighting the Medicine Wheel Map and its significance to Indigenous culture. The map, which has been illustrated by Que Rock, an Indigenous artist, is based on the Anishnaabe Medicine Wheel teachings.

The artwork explains some of the multiple layers of the medicine wheel. The images represent interconnections and show how all things are connected. Each wheel represents its own teachings. The seven layered sun in the top left represents the Seven Grandfather teachings. That is the value or moral system of the Anishnaabe people and many other First Nation tribes.

The Seven Grandfather teachings are wisdom, love, humility, respect, honesty, courage and truth. The characters represent the sacred geometry within the shapes. Also included, the seven generations thinking teachings of past, present and future. The patterns of the number 2, 3, 4, 7 all represent layers of teachings in the Anishnaabe culture.

Customers will be able to pick up a copy of the new Ride Guide in early June. This art will be featured on the cover of the Ride Guide for the rest of the year.
